How to spin a massacre of Jews into a narrative of Muslim victimhood

Following the massacre of Jews as they prayed in a Jerusalem synagogue, the mainstream media (as these screenshots show) has exceeded even my expectations for how far it can go to obfuscate the murder of Jews by Palestinian terrorists.



And the BBC - which was falling over itself to publish (usually false) pictures of dead Palestinians during the summer Gaza conflict - refused to show this (or any other) picture of today's victims when Naftali Bennett was being interviewed and he held it up -  after all, they could not possibly allow a narrative of Jewish victims:



Meanwhile British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, speaking alongside US Secretary of State John Kerry made this appalling statement:
 "Both sides in this conflict need to do everything possible to de-escalate the situation and reduce the tension we've seen in Jerusalem over the past few weeks, which is extremely dangerous for both Palestinian and Jewish communities in that area." 
There have now been over two hundred acts of terrorism committed against Jewish civilians in the Jerusalem area in the last 4 weeks resulting in 12 deaths and many dozens injured. Can anybody explain exactly how Palestinians - other than those committing actual terrorist acts - have been endangered in any way at all?

They haven't. it is just standard political messaging - and by standard I mean anti-Jewish.

Riles me with anger to see Israeli and Jewish people complaining about the coverage certain stories get. It's Irrelevant. The bbc did everything in it's power to cover up the massacre and genocide in ghaza over the summer. Now your here complaining that the murder of four Jews didn't get enough coverage, Like that's what this is all about.
